26 Seasons was born in a small Wellington garage in 2017, initially growing microgreens. Even though our focus has shifted to growing strawberries, when we first started we knew two things - we wanted to produce the best-tasting produce for chefs and home cooks alike, but we wanted to do it without taking too much from our land. So, mixing a lot of Kiwi ingenuity with plenty of research and expert advice, we are proud to say the result is sustainable farming and business practices that mean we can now grow strawberries year-round without any compromise to taste and distribute our products with minimal impact on Mother Nature.
We do not use any soils, approximately 90% of our water is recycled and, our packaging is recyclable. Our indoor controlled environment farm is in Foxton, New Zealand, supplying the North Island with freshly grown strawberries, thereby reducing food miles.
But we aren't stopping there - we are always challenging ourselves to find innovative and sustainable solutions for the love of our planet.
Our Indoor Vertical Farm
We believe in local production to supply local markets. We are one of the first indoor vertical farm producers with our flagship berry farm in Foxton. Our innovative farming methods are paving the way to a new future of food production in our country. All of our berries are grown hydroponically in a controlled environment which lets us manage the impact on the planet. No soil means no soil erosion or nutrient leaching. We use natural pollination methods and recycle approximately 90% of our water. We use advanced integrated pest management techniques and introduce natural predators to control pests. You can be assured we only use non-organic sprays as a last resort.
